Arrival Story:
I responded to an ad on craigslist that someone had found a pregnant cat on the highway and she gave birth to kittens. Luckily, there were still four available. Not knowing which to choose, I specified I wanted a female and the guy immediately picked up the tabby with orange on her head to be bathed and given to me. Aki has been with me for over a year now and raising her has been interesting.

Bio:
Aki is both loving and arrogant. Everything is on her terms and even though she has the strangest personality I have ever seen in cat, I love her to death. She knows exactly when it's good to be affectionate and purrs whenever I lay my head on her while she's sleeping. She's incredibly active and will play with anything.

Poor Kitter

Don't EVER buy the SoftClaws nail caps. They're not safe for your kitty. I had put them on Aki and although she managed to get most of them off, a few were still on. She's been destructive lately because I haven't been home as much as I used to. I thought this would help save the furniture/carpet. Well, I came home from the doctor's yesterday to find that some bins in the window had been spilled. While cleaning them up, I notice dried red stuff on the floor. Then, looking at Aki, saw she wasn't putting pressure on her left foot. I looked closer and it was swollen. Upon grabbing her paw (she really hated that) I saw what I had feared, Aki had torn a claw completely out. I immediately called the vet and while they said she'd be okay, they want her to come in to make sure it doesn't become infected. I couldn't figure out what had happened. Upon getting up this morning, I saw that the blinds had been ripped up pretty bad. There, tangled in the strings, was Aki's claw with the awful blue cap still attached. Had I not put those on her, she would never had snagged herself. I feel completely horrible and guilty about the entire incident. I removed the remaining caps on her and tossed the refills. These things aren't safe at all. :o(

That's pretty much what Aki does. Today she's been sleeping and meowing at me. Aki is a torbie (although she has more tabby markings than torishell) and from what my friend who used to work at Petsmart tells me , they tend to be very "talkative." I picked up one of those refillable catnip mice from Target and she flipped that thing around for a good twenty minutes. I need to get her in for a checkup soon but that will have to wait til we move to a new apartment. I can't wait to get her a cat tree!
